Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1. The Gospel trumpet’s sounding,
The year of jubilee,
And grace is all abounding,
To set the bondmen free.

Refrain
Return, return, ye captives,
Return unto your home,
The Gospel trumpet’s sounding,
The jubilee is come!
The Gospel trumpet’s sounding,
The jubilee is come!

2. Forsake your wretched service,
Your master’s claims are o’er;
Avail yourselves of freedom,
Be Satan’s slaves no more. [Refrain]

3. A better Master’s calling,
In accents true and kind;
He asks a loving service,
And claims a willing mind. [Refrain]

4. He offers you salvation,
And points to joys above;
And, longing, waits to make you
The objects of His love. [Refrain]

5. In living faith accept Him,
Give up all ease beside;
While grace is loudly calling,
Look to the Crucified. [Refrain]
